Rape Victim Jailed in Dubai for "Illegal Sex" - Sharia Law


Imagine the horror. A British rape victim goes to authorities in Dubai to report the rape, and she is thrown in jail for Illegal Sex. She is denied a medical examination or a rape kit. She is given a blood test to document that SHE had been drinking. She and her fiancee are now out on bail, and their passports have been confiscated. They face 6 years in prison.

But after she admitted drinking alcohol and sharing a hotel room with her fiancé, police in the strict Islamic state arrested her for "illegal drinking" outside licensed premises and having sex outside marriage. Her 44-year-old fiancé, also from London, was charged with the same offences....

The ordeal of the rape victim, a Muslim of Pakistani descent, began after she joyfully accepted a marriage proposal from her boyfriend during a three-day New Year break. She admitted drinking too much as they celebrated at Dubai Marina's luxurious Address Hotel - and passed out in a ladies' toilet. The waiter is said to have followed her into the toilets and raped her while she was semi-conscious.

Her fiancé was initially unaware of the attack and helped her to their room, where they slept until the next day. But the horror of the rape came back to her when she woke - and the pair went to Jebel Ali police station to report it.

Her attacker, who is understood to be Syrian, is believed to have denied rape. He claimed the Briton consented but has also been charged with "illegal sex".

More here.

They will never prove the rape, by the way. Under Sharia Law, a rape must be witnessed by FOUR MEN in order to be illegal. A woman's testimony is worthless. Nice.

And there are people who think this is just fine, and "Politically Correct."

Makes you want to run right out and join the religion of peace, doesn't it? These people are animals.

But I am assured it's a loving religion.

CambridgeLady said...

Insane! Disgusting. I have no desire to step foot in Dubai.

Note that the victim was also a Muslim. When she reported the crime she clearly didn't anticipate any of this would follow. I do wish moderate Muslims would join us all in condemning these appalling events.

Just a conservative girl said...

Not to blame the victim here, but I don't understand why she went to the police in a Muslim country. It is pretty well known that rape is not really a crime there. Shariah law doesn't recogonize women at all. It is chilling how badly women are treated in those countries.
There was a case in Saudi Arabia that a woman was with a guy who was not family and they were both raped. She was whipped for being out in public with a man.
Rape is used a punishment in those countries. Once a woman is raped, she is considered untouchable. She will be unable to find a husband and will be shunned by her family. No wonder the levels of depression are so high in muslim countries.

Dubai is backwards.

Wo, those people who like Sharia Law should live in those countries, and leave the rest of us to our freedom.

Opus #6 said...

Arby, that reminds me of a blog tag I saw on Snarky Basterd's site. Religion of Pieces.

Opus #6 said...

Libertarian, modern decency has no place there.

Opus #6 said...

Bill, see above- referenced Religion of Pieces. As in blowing people up into pieces, I assume.

Cambridge, moderate muslims are made irrelevant by their silence and passivity. The only thing necessary for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing.

JACG, it is outrageous how women are treated under Sharia Law. I hope this woman can go home to the UK soon and she doesn't get punished by the Dubai authorities.

Opus #6 said...

Red, it is completely backwards to jail the rape victim.

Blue Collar Todd said...

Oh, but according to President Obama's speech in Egypt, Islam has spread justice throughout the world. I have to wonder why anyone would even dare to travel to middle eastern countries for a vacation. And get ready for Sharia Law in the United States, starting with Sharia finance. Living near Disneyland my family has annual passes and you'll be comforted to know that I have seen burkas there.

Opus #6 said...

Todd, I live near Disneyland too. I will keep an eye out for the burquas.

bluepitbull said...

Why go to an Islamic country in the first place? Under the luxurious facade looms the iron fist of Islam. In fact, the prince of Dubai is notorious for crappy treatment of the ex-pat workers (true Arabs wouldn't lift a finger).

You and I both know the basics of Sharia and I'm pretty sure you won't be vacationing there anytime soon. Myself, having been in that poopy part of the world a few times have no desire to go anywhere near that place.

Opus #6 said...

Bluepit, how did you know that my next vacation destination does NOT involve the Middle East or Sharia Law. You are perceptive, I see.

Nickie Goomba said...

I'm most saddened by the fact that this does not surprise me in the least. This is the world that "moderate muslims" have allowed to take develop. They now reap what they've sown.

Teresa said...

This is one Muslim tradition that really pisses me off. Now, she can be hurt and even murdered all in the name of honor. And, they call this the religion of peace. In reality, this is the religion of violence.

TRESTIN MEACHAM said...

This is one of the reasons I think liberalism is a form mental illness. The same liberals who blast religion, and lobby so passionately for woman's rights, also champion the cause of Sharia Law.

Opus #6 said...

Nickie, moderate muslims have abandoned us. They leave us to the devices of the extremists. They are apologist appeasers. I have no use for them.

Opus #6 said...

Teresa, apparently any one of us could be raped/murdered while visiting these countries. And we had better not complain...or else.

Opus #6 said...

Trestin, the same libs who speak about women's rights carved Palin to pieces. They also do not stand for all women. Only leftist women.

Chicago Ray said...

How brutal huh Opus? I caught this earlier.

This is what America and the west faces with Sharia creep already taking place if Obama doesn't convert to American soon, and then unabashedly revert back to the Bush Cheney Muslim terror elimination plan with full H/T as well..

Snarky Basterd said...

Three cheers for the religion of pieces ... now if I ever get the accuracy of the scope on my ______ working right ... well, who knows what might happen.

Opus #6 said...

Ray, we must not let them lie to us about their "religion of peace".

Opus #6 said...

Snarky Basterd, have you taken up astronomy again? Is that what has been keeping you up nights?

The_Kid said...

England may be seeing a lot more of this sort of thing in soon coming years, according to the Church of England

(Which I posted in a comment for CL on my own site.)

Opus #6 said...

Kid, that is just the reason we need to speak up starting now.

CambridgeLady said...

Kid, that's an alarming prediction. The way things are going the largest group in the UK will probably be agnostic/atheist. If the Church of England wishes to remain the religion of the nation they need to bring new blood into the church.

I agree we ALL need to start speaking up about these atrocities Opus. I think we have the greatest chance of making a difference if we have our moderate Muslim friends and neighbours on our side. They do exist. The challenge is to find a way to encourage them to speak out. That's not going to happen if we push them away or declare that all Muslims think the same way. (The victim, a Muslim, clearly doesn't come from that mindset or she wouldn't have gone near the Police).

Thanks for posting this BTW. I have forwarded it to a number of friends - this poor woman needs people to know what has happened to her and she deserves our support.

Did you see this about BO's Sharia law supporting, Constitution hating pick for legal counsel for the State Department? We must stop this madness!

Cambridge, thanks for the update. So here is where the authorities in Dubai decide to stick their noses in. If the woman had been white and non-muslim they would not have arrested and charged her. But because her skin is NOT white and she IS muslim they put her in jail? Have they no shame? This is RACISM! Haphazard application of their CRAZY laws! And they are pressuring her to DROP the rape charges? Not to mention the shotgun wedding just so she can leave the country? Outrageous! Despicable!

Fuzzy, Obama is nothing if not consistent. {eyeroll}

Near all Info in this article is wrong.

-Waiter was Indian Guy not Arab
-They was already married for a month , but didn't had any papers, when they provided papers charge for 'illegal--sex' was withdrawn.
-Two Hotel workers and surveillance
camera footage confirmed that she was alone in washroom.
-She already DROPPED ALL CHARGES against Indian waiter.
-Only public intoxication charge is left.

why need so much lies to show how those Muslims/Arabs are evil guys?
there is always some need to show one group of people as evil twisted bad guys...that's what sells i guess.
no wonder there is so many racists

more info you can read on http://gulfnews.com/news/gulf/uae/crime/press-coverage-of-false-rape-charge-criticised-1.575348

ofc not many western medias will report about this , truth is just not so interesting.

Where are all the feminists who sit back and silently agree with this by not saying anything. This couple obviously thought they had some zone of protection being tourists but we see that that wasn't the case. To all who go to this insane part of the world go at your own risk and descend into medieval thought and behavior that has ironically benefited from the terrible west. You can't reason with a mob. It must be met with force. Islamatheid is upon us as it has been like the insidious parasite it is full of its hate and terrorism for all of the world.
